  1. This is my main concern with Rohit as captain. Very much possible that his form might decline in next two years as he approaches 35.
  2. Didn't 99% of all Indian cricket experts/pundits want Dhoni in the WC squad as first choice WK? To the credit of ICFers, vast majority, including me, wanted Dhoni gone post CT 2017 itself. Didn't happen and then writing was on the wall. Seems like Dhoni wanted his fairytale ending. No use crying over spilt milk now.

    WC Post-Mortem

    Some very valid points raised in the OP. Here's my two cents: 1. Kuldeep having a poor tournament threw a spanner in our plans. Jadeja performed admirably no doubt, but Kuldeep was supposed to be one of our main weapons in this WC. 2. Uncertainty with our middle order screwed us big time, again. The lack of a proper specialist bat at 4 was detrimental. Vijay Shankar at 4 was never the solution. Pant atm is a number 5-6 at best. 3. The batting line up is in desperate need of some fresh blood. Rohit, Kohli, Pant, Pandya + 3 new faces will be required, at the very least. 4. As much as I like Chahal, it is maybe time to try Rahul Chahar as one of our wrist spinners. He is a handy lower order batsman as well.

    At the end we got what we deserved

    Right here boss I've started a thread to discuss the future course of action to be taken to rectify our issue with choking in ICC knockouts. If you wish to contribute constructively, you're most welcome to join in on the discussion. If you wish to rant/outrage ad nauseum, carry on in the numerous r*andi rona threads that have been opened. Aapka hi blood pressure bad jayega.

    Will youngsters finally get opportunities now?

    Need a repair job in the batting order. But too many wholesale changes not ideal. Rohit and Shikhar will likely carry on till 2020 T20 WC. After that though, TM will have to make tough calls.

    Should move on from DK, Jadhav & MSD for good now. Might also have to consider Kohli dropping to 4 to shore up the middle order.

    He better inject some youth into the squad. Shaw, Gill and Pant will hopefully become LOI regulars very soon. Problem for us now is whether to persist with Rohit and Dhawan as openers for 2023 or to phase them out and go with youth.
  8. Both will be 35+
  9. Kohli was rested last year for Asia Cup, Nidhas and other T20 series. He has back problems so expect his workload to reduce further. Rohit and Shikhar have to be rested more in LOIs. Shikhar might even have to be phased out. Yes, this issue of player power must be fixed asap.

    India WC Match Thread OP Allocation

    Tricho asked rkt to make it.
  11. Good post. Couldn't agree more. Do you think Rohit and Shikhar will last till 2023? Both will be 36 and 37 respectively.
  12. Where am I defending the train wreck? Kindly point out. It is a fact that we are one of the best teams in ODIs atm, hence we were tagged favourites. Didn't work out today. Just because I don't open threads abusing the team doesn't mean I blindly support them either.
  13. Will we ever find an able replacement for peak Yuvi? I feel he was the x-factor in our last two WC wins. Any player who fits his profile in our current domestic set-up?
  14. At least I have the fortitude to show up even when we lose I don't believe in being a rudaali. Mistakes/failures are inevitable. Hopefully the team will learn and grow stronger.
